It's Monday! What Are You Reading? (April 17, 2017)

It's Monday, What Are You Reading? is now hosted by Kathryn at The Book Date.

It’s Monday!  What Are You Reading is where we gather to share what we have read this past week and what we plan to read this week.  It is a great way to network with other bloggers, see some wonderful blogs, and put new titles on your reading list.

Other Than Reading... 

A couple of meeting helped fill up a short work week. Our Spring Break started on Friday and we have Monday off too. I packed a car load and headed up to my new house on Friday morning. Now I'm just relaxing with my brother. There have been lots of fix ups and spruce up at the house we are selling. However, we are waiting for bids on the basement repair before we can go on. One bid arrived for much more than we were expecting. We're hoping the second bid is better.

When I get back this week, I'll be entertaining moving estimates from two different companies. Meanwhile the packing and sorting go on as I'm getting ready for my rummage sale. 

Read Last Week
Grave Visions by Kalayna Price is the fourth book in the Alex Craft urban fantasy series with book five coming in July. I enjoyed catching up with this character. It has been five years since I read the first three books in the series. My review will be posted on April 21.

A Gleam of Light by T.J. and M.L.Wolf is next on my adult stack. I still have a couple of YAs to read first though.

Next Week
I will be reading books from my review stack that are coming out in May next.
Both are second books in series. I've read the first books.

  1. Edited Out looks cute. Good luck with all the moving and house repairs.

  2. I'm curious about Edited Out. Enjoy all of your books, and have a great week. Thanks for visiting my blog.

  3. Happy Reading! I'm visiting from the Reading with Beth blog.

  4. Moving can be such a pain! I hope you get a better bid on your basement...and I'm glad you have had a few "chill" days to take a brea from it.

  5. Nice! I enjoy Kalayna's Alex Craft series!! Can't wait for the next one! And hopefully her other series will be revived soon too!

    Here's my Monday Wrap-up

    Have a GREAT day!

  6. Enjoy your books. I'm back from my trip. It didn't turn out as planned but we had fun. Come see what we did and what I read.

  7. Sleeping Giants sounds amazing! Looking forward to your review. Enjoy your break!

  8. I like the look of Edited Out! Enjoy your week.

  9. Hope you like Sleeping Giants! I liked it but didn't love it, and am debating whether to read the sequel. I read your review of Change Agent because that one has me really interested. I may have to get that one. In spite of it being somewhat science- heavy it does sound very compelling.

    Grave Visions looks good too!

  10. I'm feeling like reading a cozy very soon. I am sure the next rainy day will find me with one. :)You always have some great sounding ones listed! Have a great week!

  11. I hope you get a better estimate! I am so glad to be at the end of that process. Most of your authors are new to me. Have a great week.

  12. Ugh, I sympathize with home repair stuff being way more than anticipated. When we sold our house last year we were getting quotes to replace the carpet in our living room and the first estimate we got was like $1500 for ONE ROOM -- and that was with a military discount. Say what?!

    Hope you enjoy "Sleeping Giants" when you get to it! I read it last year and I'm hoping to get to the sequel soon. I really liked the epistolary format -- it made it a very fast read.

  13. Sounds like you are super busy with the moving, repairs and house related issues. The timing of your break was spot on. Enjoy your collection of books this week and happy reading!
